Is Trump The Peace Candidate?

By suggesting the U.S. might not honor its NATO commitment to fight Russia for Estonia, our foreign-policy elites declaimed, Trump has undermined the security architecture that has kept the peace for 65 years. More interesting, however, was the reaction of Middle America. Or, to be more exact, the nonreaction. Americans seem neither shocked nor horrified. What does this suggest? Behind the war guarantees America has issued to scores of nations in Europe, the Mideast and Asia since 1949, the bedrock of public support that existed during the Cold War has crumbled.

Retired General Warns Trump's America Would Be Worse Than The Civil War

No hyperbole here at all as the Trump fearmongery ratchets up to '11'. If Trump is elected, and follows through on his pledges, retired Marine General John Allen (former top commander of U.S. forces in Afghanistan) exclaimed, it would create "a civil-military crisis, the like of which we've not seen in this country before." In other words, the 'passionate Clinton supporter' told ABC, the election of Republican Donald Trump as president could mean a breakdown in the relationship between civilian and military leaders - i.e a coup.

US Launches Air Strikes Against ISIS Targets In LIbya

In what comes as the most expected geopolitical development in recent years, moments ago the United States announced that it had launched multiple airstrikes against Islamic State militants in Libya on Monday, opening a new, more persistent front against the group at the request of the United Nations-backed government, Libyan and U.S. officials said.

Philadelphia Vs. Cleveland: Divided We Stand

The clash of visions between Cleveland and Philadelphia was stark. While the saying goes, the ins 'point with pride', while the outs 'view with alarm'; we appear to be two separate and hostile peoples, living apart in two separate Americas.

Barack Obama Will Be The Only President In History To Never Have A Year Of 3% GDP Growth

Q2's US GDP growth data just crushed President Obama's 'fiction-peddling' that everything is awesome and those doom-and-gloom reality-pushers are cynical skeptics. Simply put, average annual growth rate during the current 'Obamanomics' business cycle remains the weakest of any expansion since at least 1949 leaving the orator-in-chief on track to be the only President in U.S. history to never have a single year when the economy grew by at least 3%.

And Now: The "Closest, Nastiest, Most Unpredictable" Campaign You Can Imagine

America’s about to endure the closest, nastiest, most unpredictable presidential election in more than three decades. Not since Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan ran against each other in 1980 has the choice been so stark, the warnings from each candidate about the other so dire, the likely outcome so murky. As this year’s political conventions end, there’s no clear favorite. But watch the polls next week. The leader in the first polls conducted entirely after the convention ends has won the White House every time since 1948.

Exposing Hillbama's Big Lie: The Central Issue In The U.S. Presidential Campaign

Obama’s ‘mono-polar world’ is a fiction, and the sooner that he and his Big Lie can be exposed (by the Western press, to the Western publics), the safer everyone will be. Discomforts on the parts of those who have promulgated and propagandized that lie will be vastly less than the disastrous alternative, which would destroy the world for everyone.

DNC Grand Finale: Ladies Night, Hillary Unleashed (And Katy Perry!) - Live Feed

It's the day everyone has been waiting for - Ladies' night.
